Trump: $600 Stimulus Checks Are "Ridiculously Low"


Trump threatened late Tuesday to veto the $892 billion coronavirus relief bill approved by Congress. This may delay aid for millions on the cusp of eviction and about to lose unemployment benefits. Trump said the bill did not provide enough support for small businesses. He also asked Congress to increase stimulus checks to individuals to $2,000. He called the current offer of $600 for most Americans “ridiculously low”. Nancy Pelosi agrees with Trump and many Democrats are on board to increase the stimulus checks.

The $600 is part of the $900 billion coronavirus relief package signed by President Trump. However, the checks were deemed meager by most Democrats and the president himself. The money will hopefully provide a needed boost to the economy slammed by the pandemic. The checks may also prove not to be the last round of economic assistance.

    The House of Representatives will vote on Monday on a measure to increase stimulus checks. The increase will be for Americans under a certain income level to receive $2,000 in payment. This comes after Trump signed a sweeping coronavirus relief bill into law Sunday evening. That legislation, which was negotiated on a bipartisan basis, provides for $600 in direct payments. After the deal was brokered and passed out of Congress, Trump railed against the amount. CNN reports he said it is too low, prompting House Democrats to push for an increase.
